    Hello,

    Does it really make Sense to continue this mega Thread?

    Solutions get lost in it.

    If everyone opens one Thread per topic with a good descriptive Titel, it May lead to questions being answered only once rather than multiple Times.


    So, why Not Close this one?

    Hello,


    I upgraded to 5.0 recently.

    After the upgrade everything works fine, but I was missing the Unionfs page.

    Now, in omv-extras, I find two plugins:

    -mergerfsfolders

    -unionfilesystems


    Unfortunately, I am not sure, which one I used before - I think it was unionfilesystems.


    After installing both (expecting to find in one of the two to find my drives), I get

    At each logon.

    I found this thread, but it is similar only...

    There, the suggestion is to remove the <mlimit>..

    But I do not think that this makes sense here, as I think that the self-mntentref is needed.


    I still get the same error.


    Which of the two plugins should I use, and how can I fix this issue?

    Hello,


    I understand. Thank you.

    I recommend running

    Code
    borg list /path/to/repo

    This will return a list of backups


    Or better

    Code
    borg info /path/to/repo   


    If a passphrase is needed, it will ask:


    Code
    Enter passphrase for key /path/to/repo

    And then answer


    If you add --json to the command, you will get a more suitable output.

    Hello,


    I can only tell you the obvious and you should consider that the obvious is the answer.

    And as you do not say why my answer is wrong/not applicable in your view, I cannot help further.


    You write

    Quote

    don't know how to get borg to use an existing folder when trying to make a new repo

    And this is the problem: you should not create a new repo. You should just skip the step of creating a new one in case the user already has a repo. In that case, Borg will just use that.


    I could easily add what I think is right

    You could state that and then you would get feedback.

    But you just ask not to state the obvious. How shall we do that, if we don't know what you deem obvious and also not, what you think is wrong with the obvious.
